old. >>> we're learning more about the troubled background of adam lanza. a new investigation by pbs finds that lanza was diagnosed with a sensory disorder, was very shy and liked being touched only by his mother. as for the exposure to guns, friends say lanza's mother nancy loved shooting because it helped her bond with her son. >> extraordinary reporting. this is kind of one of the summary graphs of the story, what emerges in this exploration of a still unfolding story is a portrait of a mother apparently devoted but perhaps misguided, struggling is to find her son a place in society. and a boy exceptionally smart in some areas, profoundly deficient in others, who never found a place in the world. >> it's just so sad because of the outcome of this. you think when you look at what happened in their life, you think if she had just made a different decision somewhere along the way, this could have been avoided. and everybody points to the guns, and that being the wrong decision that she made. but perhaps it's not the guns. maybe it's the type of help she got for her son and it wasn't

a documentary with pbs's "frontline" on adam lanza. susan, you spoke with the connecticut state police. what are they telling you? >> as police put it, they're saying that "we're dealing with a shooter who is dead and now we're trying to rebuild history." police are downplaying the cbs report. quoting here, here's what they're telling me, "there's no basis to the cbs story. we have not established a motive. it's inaccurate. i talked with cbs and told them that. the cbs story is not accurate whatsoever." however, the spokesman also told me that the possibility that lanza was trying to outdo norway has not been ruled out nor has anything else. investigators reportedly suggest that adam lanza may have been trying to one-up another mass murder by topping anders breivik in norway, as you said he killed 77 people, mainly teenagers. cbs news quotes law enforcement sources who found evidence of that as a possible motive in newtown. part of the evidence? news articles. "the hartford courant" reports several stories about the massacre were discovered in one of lanza's two bedrooms. connecticut investi
